She writes colourful fantasy novels over copious quantities of tea, and rarely misses an opportunity to apologise for something. Spanning the spectrum from light to dark, her works include the Draykon Series, Modern Magick, The Malykant Mysteries and the Tales of Aylfenhame.

Review by: Steven Tryon on May 8, 2018 :
Confound you, Charlotte, this book is far too short. Which is to say, I enjoyed it thoroughly and want to know What Happens Next. The story line is improbable, except that it works marvelously. (Charlotte has a habit of doing this.) The characters are zany and delightful, as usual. Ves and Jay are quite the team.

Highly recommended.
